Herb Chicken

Herb Chicken

Whoever thought that a simple baked chicken breast was boring was dead wrong.

This baked chicken breast with parsley, rosemary, and lemon zest positively bursts with fresh, bright flavors.

Any fresh herbs can be used in this recipe — try substituting the rosemary with basil, tarragon, or oregano. The leftovers (if you have any!)  taste great on a salad.
